Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

IMO, it wasn't anywhere close to LOTR... comparable to Narnia, though. It was just ok.

In other words, I should rent it for $4 and not buy it for $30. Thanks.

When it was all said and done, I thought it was a ridiculous movie.

A girl that smart (and smart-ass) wouldn't have used protection?

A family that was unconcerned and not stressed by their teenaged daughter's pregnancy?

The typical deal with Bateman's character?

Sorry, I thought the whole movie played out like a phony afterschool special.

Just without the message.

Yeah, I wouldn't have bought it. It's worth a rental, but not much more than that.

Are you aware it's a COMEDY?

I bought Narnia sight unseen a couple of years ago. Again, not a bad flick, but definitely not a buyer. I really should stop doing that.

I assume you know this, but just in case you don't, you can read about these movies, including the reaction of both critics and non-critics at sites like www.rottentomatoes.com and www.imdb.com . That way you can avoid some of the over-hyped duds.

Narnia got good reviews. I didn't hate it; it's just not something I'd probably ever watch again. The last movie I bought without watching first was No Country For Old Men. I can guarantee that I'll never watch that overrated turd again, and it won several Oscars.

I liked that movie. I will say i the end caught me a little off guard.

However after re-watching it. Its all good. No problem at all.

Think a little, (i do mean a little) outside the box. Stop thinking typical hollywood endings.

I thought No Country was a great movie, and I didn't have any problem with the ending at all.

I really don't need a typical Hollywood ending. Here are some of my favorite movies:

Casablanca - other guy gets the girl. Our hero gets the Frenchman and a chance to get run down in the desert by Panzer tanks.

Glory - EVERYBODY DIES.

Godfather - the hero turns into a complete ruthless one who sucks the penis.

L.A. Confidential - One hero dies, one gets shot in the face and loses his job, the other one gets a promotion but loses the girl.

The Crow - The hero is DEAD WHEN IT STARTS.

I'm not necessarily looking for Gary and Grace riding off into the sunset. But No Country's ending was unsatisfying, pointless and annoying. I thought it sucked when I first saw it, and I still think it sucks.

Agree on all those. How about "Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."?
